We Didn't Expect That!
When Cycling Weekly announced their search for Britain's Best Bike shop 2017, I'll be the first to admit, I didn't think we'd place in the top 5 or so in the Yorkshire region. Not that I don't think we're good at what we do, have a great offering and a wide range of experience and some amazing customers who make it fun to come to work, just that there's bigger independent bike shops out there than us. Shops with proper marketing budgets, websites that get huge amounts of hits a day and have more buying power than little us...
Shops that probably take themselves a little more seriously than we do.
We know that we've got a great customer base, we see a lot of you frequently when you pop in, have a coffee, buy items and have your bikes repaired. What's blown us away is how many of you voted for us and some of the nice words you used to express why you come and see us and choose to spend your money with us.
To be voted 2nd in Yorkshire, and so best bike shop in York, well, we're blown away. A HUGE thanks you to all from us!
